MP CALLS FOR FUNDY PARK TO OPEN IN LOCKSTEP WITH PROVINCE
For Immediate Release, May 14, 2020
ALMA, NB - Fundy National Park must re-open in lockstep with New Brunswick’s provincial parks says Fundy Royal MP Rob Moore.
Moore has written a letter to the Minister responsible for Parks Canada, Hon. Jonathan Wilkinson, calling on Fundy National Park to open in coordination with the provincial parks.
“The federal government needs to recognize the progress New Brunswick has made in combating COVID-19. Fundy National Park needs to open in coordination with the province,” said Moore.
“This park is a critical economic driver for Alma and surrounding communities,” said Moore. “It would be devastating if the federal government delays opening Fundy National Park”.
Fundy National Park normally welcomes 350,000 visitors each year. MP Moore has heard from small businesses who are concerned about the impact COVID-19 will have on tourism in the region.
“Small businesses are worried about this year’s tourism season. We need to ensure Fundy National Park opens and that New Brunswickers are encouraged to reconnect with their province and to support local businesses,” said Moore.

Sussex Health Centre
I attended a meeting hosted by Horizon Health regarding the decision to reduce hours at the Sussex ER.
I listened to the real experts: doctors and nurses, as well as patients who were not consulted before this decision was made. I strongly believe that the time to consult is before any decision is made, not after.
I commend the people of the Sussex region who crammed into the cafeteria of the Hospital to speak up on this issue that we all care so much about.
While health care delivery is a provincial responsibility, local input is an essential part of decision making.
As a parent I have had to take my kids to the ER in the middle of the night. When you’re rushing a loved one to the ER, any additional kilometre of travel is worrisome. The doctors told us that in an emergency, distance and time are literally life-or-death. I have listened to many in our region who say that without intervention at the Sussex Emergency Room, they would not be alive today. Driving over an hour in the middle of a winter night to the Saint John Regional or Moncton hospitals to their overcrowded emergency rooms is not an acceptable proposition.
Access to quality health care and education services in our rural communities must continue for them to be vibrant places to live, work and raise a family. I remain very concerned about the impact of this decision and will be sharing residents’ concerns directly with the provincial government.
